Creative Renaissance of the Iron Age.
Professor Timo Sarpaneva’s grandfather was a blacksmith. Being around fire and molten metal in his childhood inspired the designer to recreate a popular version of the ancient cast-iron pot. The Sarpaneva pot became such a favourite that it was featured on one of a collection of postage stamps celebrating the Finnish design elite. The Sarpaneva pot is a combination of tradition, functionalism and polished aesthetics. It is a basic object for the home that you can lift from the stove straight to the table. Its distinguishing innovative feature is the detachable wooden handle you use to open the lid and lift the pot. The excellent qualities of the enamelled cast-iron pot on the stove, in the oven and when serving, complete perhaps the most beautiful cast-iron pot in the world.
The Sarpaneva cooking pot is suitable for gas, glass-ceramic, halogen and induction stoves. However, you shouldn't clean it in the dishwasher or with steel-sponges.
